Liverpool has signed the young Spanish striker Luis Alberto from Sevilla on a long-term contract.

The 20-year-old, who has been capped at several levels of youth football by Spain, completed the deal after passing a medical although international clearance is still to be given.

Alberto spent last season on loan with Barcelona B, where he scored 11 goals and collected 17 assists in 38 appearances.

Alberto came through Sevilla's academy and made his first-team debut in April 2011 before going out on loan.
